fast grower

been in the tank for a week, after arriving somewhat damaged due to USPS, but already showing signs of new leaf buds. This is apparently a FAST grower. Great color and perfect for a background climbing vine, but the small leaves dont choke out too much space from other plants

Amazing quality and fast service

We ordered two of these plants. They arrived safe,fast and in great condition. They were carefully wrapped individually to keep them protected. This company really cares about every product living, breathing or not. I definitely recommend them. They also are quick to get you your stuff in a safe timely manner depending on the weather not just in their area but yours as well. AMAZING!
